Thank you for your interest in Global Citizen Journey. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to creating connections and dissolving boundaries between communities all around the world. Our roots are in Africa, but our aspirations are to facilitate the creation of a network of people that spans the globe.
GCJ journeys join hearts in conversation and hands in work by connecting U.S. delegates with citizens of a host country where they work toward a common goal and common understanding. In 2005, we took about 20 delegates from the Puget Sound area to the Niger Delta in order to build the first library in the region in partnership with the Niger Delta Professionals for Development (NIDPRODEV). In 2006 we took a second group of delegates to Ghana to build an orphanage and community center in partnership with Western Heritage Home.
Our next journey is to Burundi in the summer of 2009 with host partner Youth in Reconstruction of a World in Deconstruction (JRMD/YRWD). As we prepare for our third journey, we invite you to look over this online packet of information designed to be informative to the press.
